In the mid-year update of its 2018 Cyber Threat Report issued in July, SonicWall raised the alarm on the continuing surge of malware and ransomware, as well as encrypted threats and chip-based attacks.
Among the key takeaways from the report…
- More than 5.99 billion total malware attacks detected, up 102% in the first six months of 2018.
- Ransomware is back in big way, with 181.5 million attacks since January, a 229% year-to-date increase.
- Encrypted attacks that hide weaponized code are up 275% over last year.
Criminals are not the only ones making big gains, however. The report noted that innovative and emerging firewall technologies are adapting to the changing threat landscape by delivering actionable threat intelligence, security efficacy, and automated real-time breach detection and prevention.
For example, the company’s Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection (RTDMI) firewall technology now stops Meltdown and Spectre chip-based attacks, as well as attacks leveraging PDFs and Microsoft Office documents.
